Work Zone Safety is in Your Hands

19 March 2021

Work zones require everyone to stay alert and be prepared for sudden changes that distracted drivers may not notice in time to prevent a crash. It is up to each of us to be vigilant when driving through or near highway work zones.

But workers are not the only ones in danger. In fact, four out of every five work zone fatalities are drivers or their passengers. To stay safe, remain focused on the road and make sure you obey the speed limit.

On average, three fatalities each workday happen in highway construction areas nationwide. This is something we can prevent, so please join us in raising awareness and driving safely.

Work zone safety doesn't just occur during daylight hours - rules apply 24/7. To help keep work zones safe, please slow down, maintain a safe following distance, stay alert, and expect the unexpected. 

FAQs

The Safe at Home address confidentiality program, within the Office of the Secretary of State, was implemented to serve victims of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking.

The goal of the Safe at Home program is to help victims who have relocated or are about to relocate, in their effort to keep their perpetrators from finding them.

Safe at Home has two components: a substitute address service and a protected records service. These services limit a perpetrator’s ability to access public information that could identify the new location of a victim who is in the program. This is not a witness protection program, rather it is a mail forwarding service.

For more information visit the Secretary of State website.
